Been a long time since I've used Redhat, but best I recall it's service script has a handler for sendmail. Maybe "service sendmail status", "service sendmail stop", "service sendmail start". Else you can check to see if it's running using "ps aux | grep sendmail".

ps can be ran from anywhere. ps is simply a command line utility that outputs information about running processes, no precautions necessary:

man ps
